Former Liverpool owner and chairman David Moores has died at the age of 76.
Liverpool released a statement on Friday saying the Premier League club is "deeply saddened" over the passing of Moores on Friday, just a few weeks after the death of his wife, Marge.
Moores served as chairman of the Merseyside club for 16 years from 1991, which is when he completed a takeover at Anfield.
He became honorary life president after selling his majority stake in the Reds in 2007.
The Moores family held a majority stake in Liverpool for over a half a century.
Liverpool won 10 major trophies during his tenure, the highlight being an incredible Champions League triumph in 2005.
The club said in a statement: "The thoughts of everyone at Liverpool FC are with David's family and friends at this difficult time."
